Letlhakane police are investigating a case in which a 26-year-old Zimbabwean man was found dead by the roadside at Nthane lands in the outskirts of Letlhakane village Friday night.

Prior to his passing, the deceased was allegedly seen harassing people at some shebeen and ended up leaving the shebeen chasing after another Zimbabwean man. Letlhakane assistant police station commander, Assistant Superintendent, Tsholofelo Masole said they received a report of the incident Friday night from a woman who was passing by and saw the deceased's lifeless body.

"Through our preliminary investigations we have since established from members of the community in Nthane lands that the deceased was terrorizing people in the area, as he was always fighting people. They described him as a rowdy notorious young man who was terrorizing everyone. They said on the fateful night as always he was harassing people at the shebeen and left the shebeen chasing after another Zimbabwean man," Masole said.

She further stated that the people who were at the shebeen do not know what happened after the deceased left chasing after another Zimbabwean man. Masole said, the deceased was rushed to Letlhakane clinic where he was certified dead on arrival by doctors. "We suspect that the deceased might have fought with the other Zimbabwean man he was seen chasing after from the shebeen, because he had sustained serious head injuries and other injuries on his body, which suggests that he might have been fighting prior to his death. Investigations are ongoing to locate and question the other man he was seen chasing after. We suspect that he might be the one who killed him," she said.
